Led by the iconic Mark McGwire USA rookie and some of the first readily available cards of Roger Clemens and Kirby Puckett, 1985 Topps Baseball remains one of the decades best sets.
1984 Topps Traded Baseball was one of the most coveted releases of the 1980s thanks to the company’s first card of Dwight Gooden. While the pitcher’s career faded fast, the set still boasts other rookies like Bret Saberhagen and Mark Langston.
Maintaining a similar design from the previous year, 1984 Topps Baseball is one of the more attractive sets of the decade. The checklist is led by the rookie of long-time hobby favorite Don Mattingly.
Although it doesn’t carry the same popularity as it once did, 1983 Topps Traded Baseball remains one of the most recognizable sets of the 1980s. The first cards of Darryl Strawberry and Julio Franco are the best in the set.
Boasting one of the decade’s most iconic cards in Cal Ripken Jr, 1982 Topps Traded Baseball marks the second straight year of the late-season box set.
